Handsome Akkineni young lad Akhil's much-hyped debut film Akhil released on Diwali last year and ended up as a huge disaster. The film was made with a whopping 40 plus crore budget, but its box-office result disappointed not just the fans and buyers but also the Akkineni family.
In a promotional interview for his Sankranthi release Soggade Chinni Nayana, Akhil's father Nagarjuna said that he too was extremely disappointed with Akhil's failure. Stating that the film's director and producer put in their best efforts, Nag said that days are gone for the routine dances and fights in Telugu films.
Nag then said that Akhil realized his mistake now and has decided to select scripts which have a strong content. Nag then revealed how he, after facing a series of miserable flops, met Mani Ratnam and did Geethanjali that suited his sensibilities and even paved a success path to his career.
Nag finally concluded saying that he advised Akhil to follow the same and only work in films that match his sensibilities.
